Kim Stanley Facts
After successfully playing the lead in "Bus Stop" on Broadway, she was unsuccessful in her campaign to recreate the part of Cherie in the screen version, and the role went to Marilyn Monroe. Ironically, just two years later, Stanley won an Oscar nomination for "The Goddess," a role loosely based on Monroe's life.

While appearing on Broadway in "Bus Stop", the highly strung actress kept a waste basket in the wings to throw up in between scenes. Costar Elaine Stritch told her, "Save that sh*t for the Actors Studio".

Was twice nominated for Broadway's Tony Award as Best Actress (Dramatic): in 1959, for Eugene O'Neill 's "A Touch of the Poet," and in 1962, for "A Far Country." Although one of Broadway's most esteemed actresses, she never won a Tony.
